In the middle of planning our peru trip, have a question on where to stay prior to MP.
Plan is to do the 4 day classic inca trail trek, I believe the most convenient place to stay is cusco and to get use to the altitude for couple of days before the trek? However, there's a place I have my mind set on to stay at but it's at Urubamba. Researched it and said Urubamba is at lower altitude than cusco and most trek operators prefer the pick ups from cusco. Question is, is it doable to use urubamba as base before the trek or is the altitude too low to help to get over the sickness? And is Urubamba convenient enough to do day trips such as sacred valley, etc? Thanks in advance.
